This article describes embedding native Windows and Linux control into an Avalonia application.
Embedding native Windows and Linux control into an Avalonia application is important if one needs to port a native application to multiplatform Avalonia or if one does not have some complex Avalonia controls that had been built natively. I also present the best architecture for using native views within Avalonia via an IoC container and dynamic loading. Finally, the article describes how to make a native window run by a different process into a visual part of an Avalonia application.

I am a software architect and a developer with great passion for new engineering solutions and finding and applying design patterns.

I am passionate about learning new ways of building software and sharing my knowledge with others.

I worked with many various languages including C#, Java and C++.

I fell in love with WPF (and later Silverlight) at first sight. After Microsoft killed Silverlight, I was distraught until I found Avalonia - a great multiplatform package for building UI on Windows, Linux, Mac as well as within browsers (using WASM) and for mobile platforms.

I have my Ph.D. from RPI.
